The Sea Side 2 restaurant in Udon Thani is in one of the city’s most lively streets, Soi Sampantamit, right in the heart of Udon Thani’s nightlife area. It’s a restaurant which caters for both westerners and Thais, has a menu that stretches a mile and one which will not lighten your wallet too much either.
The Sea Side 2 is a budget friendly family run restaurant with decent quality food and a menu packed with tasty snacks and full-blown meals. The restaurant’s popularity is growing, the Sea Side is fast becoming a favourite place to eat among Udon Thani’s expats which says much about its appeal as one of the best restaurants in Udon Thani in terms of value for money and decent standard food.
The Sea Side’s menu has the kind of food which gets you reminiscing of your grandmother’s kitchen back home. Its menu includes beef stew (100฿), bangers and mash(100฿), cottage pie (120฿) and liver and bacon (120฿). There’s also favourites like fish and chips, chicken curry and spaghetti bolognese, as well as a range of desserts at budget boosting prices.
The photo on the right (click to enlarge) is a snapshot of the food available and the menu has a whole more western food and authentic Thai cuisine as well.
The restaurant is clean-looking and roomy, and despite this picture showing empty tables (it was taken early morning), the restaurant ticks over with a regular stream of customers. The Sea Side 2 sells comfort foods in a comfortable setting at very cheap and cheerful prices. That’s a recipe for success.
A cup of coffee and a cheeseburger come to a combined bill of 75 baht. That’s great value.
An English breakfast served with toast, orange juice and a choice of tea or coffee, all for just 95 baht. It’s no wonder Udon Thani’s expats are getting a taste for a trip to the Sea Side.
Portions are big, this giant bowl of Thai Suki soup (80฿) would keep most people nourished for the best part of the day and my feedback suggested the restaurant’s authentic Thai cuisine is first-rate.
The Sea Side 2 in Udon Thani is a no thrills value for money restaurant ideal for both the budget conscious backpacker and the well-heeled tourist. It’s also a great place for those who want a taste of their grandma’s cooking in Udon Thani.
